Police appeal after teenager is robbed and attacked in Wheathampstead
Police are appealing for information after a teenager was attacked and robbed in Wheathampstead last week.
On Wednesday, December 11 at around 5.30pm a Renault Clio pulled up in Wright Close and two men got out.
They walked up to the victim, an 18-year-old man, who had just got off a bus from St Albans in nearby Hill Dyke Road.
They removed his earphones from his ears before taking his phone from his pocket. One of the criminals then punched the victim leaving him with bruising to his face and eye injuries.
The first man is described as a white man in his early 20s, 5ft 7ins tall and of a slim build. He had a dark brown beard and was wearing a dark hooded jacket.
The second criminal is described as a white man in his early 20s and 5ft 11ins tall. He was wearing a blue Puffa jacket and beanie hat.
Detective Sergeant Mark Clawson is investigating and said: “I am keen to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time and saw the vehicle to contact me, particularly if you have any information about a possible number plate.
“I would also like to hear from anyone who saw what happened or who has any information about who may be involved to contact police.”
Anyone with information should contact DS Mark Clawson via the Herts police non-emergency number 101 quoting crime reference number F2/13/1576. Alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
